Liverpool Health Partners (LHP) brings together the Liverpool City Region’s NHS and academic institutions to improve health and deliver exemplary research, education and healthcare. Our six core values of excellence, enterprise, transparency, integrity, social responsibility and collaboration guide us as we unite professionals and organisations to work together towards common goals. 

LHP is a strategic partnership of 9 primary and secondary care NHS organisations, the University of Liverpool, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and Liverpool John Moores University. LHP’s role is to co-ordinate and drive the strengths of Liverpool in biomedicine, applied health research and the NHS with a single voice to support inward investment to improve health outcomes for Liverpool City and the wider region. 

This is an exciting period in the growth and development of LHP. We have recently appointed a new Chief Executive Officer and Director of Research to help us strengthen our already excellent team. To enable LHP to continue to grow further, we are in the process of building capacity so that we have the expertise in our research themes to deliver first class research that improves the health outcomes for the population we serve and beyond.

We are looking for a Chair who has experience of chairing multi-agency meetings at a senior level, along with experience of working across systems and who understands the complex environment LHP works within.
